at which windspeed does your ARX 11.5 start?
many guys use a 3 kite setup like this one:
8-12-16 sqm surface area.
I use ARX 7.5-11.5-15.5
With your weight and size of board you could start early with a 16 sqm kite. Like 8-10 knts.
With this setup you could ride from 3.5 - 7/8 Beaufort, also depending on your skills.
I heard the Aero 8 is good and the Rhino 16, which have good handling.
But there are many good kites out there.

at which windspeed do you have fun with your 11.5? I would guess at higher 4 Beaufort, or?
Below that you can have good fun with a 16 sqm. The Aero 8 you can fly from 5-7/8.
Don't forget you will be better every day you are out on the water.
At the begining I used my 11.5 in 34, then after some weeks from 4-5. Last year from 5-6 and now I can fly it up to 7.5 Beaufort.
Your technique will be better and the boards are getting shorter. This way you can hold the pressure. If you can, get both kites. If not, think about which are the main windspeeds you are riding in?
Do you have more high winds, get a 8 sqm, do you have more lighter winds, get a 16 sqm.

I hope that helped.
